Hey, it may not help much with outlook, but I read/write mails
with setedit, an editor aimed at programmers which doesn't support
email quoting. So I created a macro for it to reformat mails. The
macro calls an external python script, which in turn calls GNU fmt
command to do the dirty work.

You might want to take a look at it to see how it reformats quoting,
and rip the simple algorithm to implement it in your python mail
program. Get it all from here:

PD: Obviously all this was reformatted with the script.
